I like easel cards because the can be so versatile. I used the decoupage technique. I had this beautiful print that I had be saving so time to break loose with it. It loosely fit the color dare with just a wee bit of celery in it. I also had a turquoise piece that was grungy with a faint flourish on one corner. I cut out that area with a label three nestie so the flourish would suggest tree limbs in the background. I also cut out two creme pieces and rand thru the cuttlebug folder to give some texture. I had the use two to frame the turquoise since I didnt have one big enough. I mounted them
behind the turquoise and foam dotted on. I stamped my bird on a limb image several times and cut them out. I laid the first one directly onto the turquoise paper. I then got some little twigs off a vine and bent them to follow the stamped image and glued it on. Then cut out the second image and and leaves and mounted part onto the twig and foam mounted the rest.Some of the leaves have three layers. You can look at the one side pic that shows the layers. I drew and colored a few more leaves and glued a few singles onto the vine also. I then added the fence that my friend sent me and a turquoise strip to finish it. I made flowers using a dotted turquoise print, the solid turquoise, and creme, texturing, shaping and fastened together with rosey brads. I fastened one with some twigs and leaves at the top corner. Next I cut out the creme and turquoise with the smaller label three nestie, textured, shaded and added the sentiment. I then attached another piece of vine, leaves and a flower, bent the bottom back and attached so it stands up. I made one large flower using the nestie and cutting some freehand to form all the layers. I attached it with some leaves and more vine. Lastly I attached two rosy brads and one flower to act as a stop. This card has to be one of my alltime favorites Although the pictures do not really capture it, the colors are beautiful , the layers give it lots of dimension and its so springy!

  1. Davi, I just love this card! The color combo, the delicate leaves and shapes really are beautiful with the bird which reminds me of a Texas mocking bird but with colorful plumage! A very excellent creation! You did good, girlfriend! Love and hugs, Martha
